I have been really rubbish on email lately – Sorry if you are still awaiting a reply from me. I only have one day a week to work on minieco so getting a post up is always such a rushed affair. (I’m training to be a teacher at the moment!)

As I mentioned last year my husband is the non-romantic type so I’m always trying to come up with something that’s not too schmaltzy!

The design with the single heart is a nod to the Comme Des Garçons (Play) heart!

geometric heart: love letters // popup card

Hello everyone. I’ve been making these expandable/collapsible geometric heart cards – great for love letters!

love letter template // by minieco

It’s a really simple project to put together and one that you could customise to your own taste. After you have made your heart all you need to do is write your sweet nothings inside and pop it in an envelope.

You can also incorporate this geometric heart into an easy popup insert for a card (perfect for the people who found the popup pixel heart card too difficult).

Giftwrap // Paper Donut!

Happy new year everyone. Hope you all had a lovely time. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get a post up (I win the prize for being the least consistent blogger!).

Just before Christmas I had an email from a reader requesting a donut template. I am a huge fan of donuts so here we are. It’s a pretty fun template and would make a cute giftbox.

(If you happen to love donuts as much as I do then check out studiodiy.com for lots of other donut related crafts!)

2. Score along the white lines using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle). Fold along each of these lines.

3. Glue the ‘donut hole’ together and stick onto the main template. Stick the tabs down on one side of the template but remember to leave one tab open if you want to use it as a giftbox. Glue the lid down.

Cut + fold paper stars

This post is sponsored by The Loctite Repair Network

I love these stars. I wanted to do a cut-and-fold version of origami lucky stars. You can make them in different sizes and you can hang them on yours Christmas tree or make a garland from them. I also saw some similar stars being used as gift boxes.

They look great alongside all the other paper decorations I’ve been making lately.

I hope all your Christmas plans are coming along well. I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas (I start to panic when I think of all the things that need to be done in the next week).

YOU WILL NEED:
- – – – – – – – – –
+ Good quality A4 paper (in whatever colours you fancy)
+ Scissors
+ Ruler
+ Loctite All Purpose Adhesive 20ml
+ Thread
+ Sticky tape

Paper stars // MiniEco

HOW TO
- – – – – – -

1. Print out the templates (see section below). There is a large medium and small version. (Make sure you set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ or ‘text and image’). Cut around the outside of the template using a pair of scissors.

2. If you want to incorporate your stars into a string of LED lights then you will need to punch a hole in the star at this stage. If you want to hang them on your tree then attach a loop of cotton instead. If you just want to thread your stars onto some string then you can do that after making the stars so skip this stage entirely!

3. Now, score along all the lines using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle).

4 & 5. Fold along each of the lines you have just scored.

6. Apply a small amount of Loctite All Purpose Adhesive to on of the tabs and stick together.

Handy hint: You can also use Loctite Power Easy as an alternative to the All Purpose glue. It is a Super Glue, so works quicker and is stronger but doesn’t stick for around 30 seconds, which gives you some time for re-positioning. It is also a gel formula, so won’t soak through your paper.

7. Continue for the remaining three tabs.

8. Job done – Yay!
